UCL Provost’s Teaching Award goes to Joe

“Outstanding contribution to learning”

UCL Provost’s Teaching Award goes to Joe

Joe Thorogood, in the final year of his UCLGeography PhD studies, has won one of this year’s two UCL Provost’s Teaching Awards for Postgraduate Teaching Assistants, having made, “an outstanding contributions to the learning experience and success of UCL students”.

As a PGTA Joe has taught on Global and Development Geography, Urban Geography and Cities and Modernity, well as in practical and seminar courses. In January this year, with fellow PhD student Anna Plyushteva and undergraduates  Fumika Azuma and Charlotte Collins, he co-organized the successful UCLGeography student-staff academic conference. He has also been active outside UCL, including through the RGS (with IBG) as a Geography Ambassador in schools.

Joe’s research is in the field of critical geopolitics, focusing on medicine in the early-mid 20th century and how its consumption and production became geopolitical through the League of Nations. He was awarded a 5 month ESRC Fellowship as a visiting scholar at the Kluge Center in the US Library of Congress in March 2016, and is currently in Vancouver until late June on an ESRC Overseas Institutional Visit to the University of British Columbia.
